Here at Digital Touch we’ve recently experienced a significant influx of enquiries by new customers. A high percentage wanting us to answer the following question. Just how do you make your lockdown wedding photos look more professional?
The reason behind the surge we’re witnessing in this particular query has no doubt been fuelled by the pandemic. From which nobody can escape the infinite impacts of, for the best part of a year now.
The upshot being many brides and grooms have been left with little choice other than to keep their wedding guest/party numbers to a minimum. Due to Coronavirus restrictions in place.
Obviously, something has to be canned in this situation. And that something has largely been the employing of a professional wedding photographer it would seem. If Digital Touch‘s enquiries tell us anything, above and beyond the customer brief.

There’s always a chance it’s going to happen, unfortunately. And with the best will in the world. Digital Touch is of course referring to those unfortunate lapses in wedding photo picture quality. As a direct result of non-professional photographers assuming the official duties normally undertaken by an experienced individual.
At least, when there isn’t a global pandemic on. Which inevitably leads to lots of things having to give. The ‘give’ in the case of weddings, being professional wedding photographers, it would appear.
Are We Suggesting That People/Wedding Guests Lacking Experience in Lens-craft Are Standing In?
Yes. Just that.
Because during 2020 it was very much a case of ‘when needs must’ in this wedding photo scenario. As we all continued making allowances and quickly adapting to the ever-changing demands of a ‘new normal’. If not for all our futures, then for the time being.
The world of weddings, like pretty much everything else, hasn’t been immune to significant revisions. A direct result of lockdown T’s & C’s over the past 12 months. The legality of wedding guest numbers have been subject to a number of impromptu revisions during this period. Which meant that sometimes it was difficult to keep up with the official government line.
Incidentally, for more information about the very latest legislation, scroll down to the bottom of this blog.
OK. But Explain This. How DO You Make Your Lockdown Wedding Photos Look More Professional?
We’ll reveal that in a minute. But first, a bit more of the low-down as to why Digital Touch is receiving this unprecedented volume of enquiries. Purtaining to the following question. How do you make your lockdown wedding photos look more professional?
And that’s for the simple reason that until January this year – when weddings in England were still allowed to take place, but guest numbers were restricted – some couples (or wedding planners) decided to overlook the role of wedding photographer.
At least, in official form.
Instead, opting for alternative arrangements. Which clearly included friends and family doing a bit of multi-tasking on the special day. And assuming lens duties for the betrothed couple.
You see, this is what happens when people don’t have the luxury of wedding photographers during times of Covid-safe wedding ceremonies. Knee-jerk reactions typically sees others stepping into the breach. The problem is, and with the greatest of respect, those who answer the call. Seldom to they possess the skills that a professional wedding photographer does. Despite their obvious honourable intentions.

Object removal. And yes, it’s not unheard of for that ‘object’ requiring photographic removal being another wedding guests
Conversely, adding a missing wedding guest to a group shot
Editing shadows which might have fallen across a wedding guest’s face or clothing

So here they are.
Right now, as Digital Touch pens this blog, if you reside in England then you can forget about a wedding, as the third national lockdown rolls on. Unless that is the ceremony has been given the green light courtesy of special dispensation. These exceptional circumstances tragically only extend to scenarios where one of the couple is seriously ill. And unlikely to recover, for example. In this instance, up to six people can attend. Not including those working at the event. A reception is not permitted, alas.
Elsewhere within the home nations, Scots looking to tie the knot anytime soon are allowed to plan their ceremonies. Providing that no more than 5 guests are in attendance. including the couple, witnesses and the officiant. Just as long as the venue’s capacity allows for 2m for social distancing. 6 people are allowed should an interpreter is required.
In Wales, the story is one of wedding ceremonies being allowed to go ahead in approved venues. The maximum number of attendees effectively determined by building’s capacity. Thus allowing social distancing between households.
While Northern Ireland‘s take on the rules mean that up to 25 people can attend a ceremony. Although events with more than 15 people require a risk assessment to be carried out beforehand. Plus it goes without saying that face masks must be worn by guests.
